Ever since its inception, Jio has been extolled for the extremely affordable service. Well, that’s going to change. In its latest announcement, Jio declares an additional 6 paise per minute for voice calls made to competitor network users. However, the company will be offering free data of equivalent value to square it off. Now, you may call it a relief of sorts!
But why the sudden development? If you’re wondering this, the company pushes the blame on the rule by which Telecom companies are supposed to pay their rival networks for the inter-alia calls. Reliance, thus assures that the Interconnect Usage Charges (IUC) will be levied until the end of January 2020, when this regime comes to an end.
Starting tomorrow, Jio users will have to buy any of the following recharge vouchers. If you’re a postpaid customer, then the charges will reflect on your bill. Like the new 6 Paisa/min charge, the extra data will be clubbed to your plan.

When will the new IUC tariffs of 6p/minute be applicable for Jio Users?
For consumers who have recharged their plans on or after October 9, the new tariff will apply immediately. For everyone else, the charges will apply only after their current plan expires.
Yes. the 6p/ minute charge will be added to the monthly bill for Jio postpaid users.
